    Re: Thread Binder

    Ooopss...I have to learn to keep reading before posting.

    I think that many of these:
    Life in the Village: Little things to know about customs, beliefs, and safety in Rural Issan.

    Being "right" and still being wrong.
    Don't sit on a Cobra
    In search of "Good Dragon"
    keep your pretty head low!
    Would best be suited in a general Thailand section. I think they are well written and share some great culture points, but I'm not sure they are specific to Isaan. ?? I'm wondering what your thoughts are on this?

    I think "don't sit on a cobra" is a good Isaan story because it was Isaan lore/advice. However, "keep your head pretty low", and "being right" are certainly very general.

    Re: Thread Binder

    There are no others that really spring to mind to add to the abovementioned. Maybe it's too early and a stronger idea on how to do this will be clearer when the forum has been going a bit longer.
    I definitely like the idea of the ''retirement'' binder as it seems a lot of farrang do retire there and that might attract more members in the future.

    Re: Thread Binder

    Thanks for the feedback.

    It would be an interesting pursuit to document food from Isaan. I don't know if the general reader would have the stomach for some of it though. I guess a Laos food binder would be really interesting to build in that regards; I will add a topic line and see where it goes.

    Sparky; I truly understand your point and I thought about that very thing prior to posting a rough draft. There seemed to be a couple of benefits to building earlier rather than later that made it make sense. One is to give an outline of general topics for readers that have the information but are not sure how the idea would fit in the Forum. If the other threads match the idea it could generate better participation in creating new threads with new ideas.

    Thanks again

    Re: Thread Binder

    I think Isan food would be a good one cos it's an area where the food is distinctly different from other parts of Thailand - tho Richard says the ''food'' part of the overall forum is the one that gets the least posts.

    I just looked through a few pages on the thread "Isan highlights'' and found those great photos visionchaser posted. I hadn't looked before cos 111 posts seemed like too much of a chore to plough through. I wonder if it could be broken down smaller into a number of more distinct threads.

    Re: Basic Travel in Isaan and More: Regular Updates

    I'm pretty new here. I'd sure like to see more posts with more ideas and personal experiences and thoughts. I would learn a lot from those who are more experienced.

    I don't live in Thailand but I've lived in Chiang Mai twice and I spent the month of April 2013 touring Isaan in a rental car. I really enjoyed it. I do know three people via internet in the area and I visited them. One is a male expat in Khon Kaen, and two are Thai teachers in village schools in the greater Sisaket, Buriram, Surin area. They are females.

    I was introduced to food that was much spicier than I would prefer, and offered some things I wasn't ready for yet such as insects. But I did thoroughly enjoy myself, and I enjoyed seeing what I assume is more of old style Thailand. I would surely go back. I would rate my acquaintances and their families as friendly.

    I did make it on up North, going through Udon and up to the bridge, and over to Lampang and then back to Bangkok where I had rented the car.

    I would really like some people, especially any who live there, to share opinions of people (or maybe more advice) and culture and anything else that comes to mind for a newbie.

    Thanks in advance for anyone who makes the effort. I'm all ears, haha.
